What Is Finastride and How Does It Work?

finasteride for hair loss

Cas No.: 98319-26-7

Molecular Formula: C23H36N2O2

IUPAC Name: (1S,3aS,3bS,5aR,9aR,9bS,11aS)-N-tert-butyl-9a,11a-dimethyl-7-oxo-1,2,3,3a,3b,4,5,5a,6,9b,10,11-dodecahydroindeno[5,4-f]quinoline-1-carboxamide

Finasteride is a white to off-white powder mainly manufactured in China and India.

People use it to stop hair loss or regrow hair in men.

Many people also use it for hair regrowth in North America and the Middle East.

People also use it to treat excessive hair growth in women and as a part of hormone therapy for transgender women by oral dosages.

Sometimes Dermo doctors would prescribe it for acne.

Finasteride is widely used for male pattern baldness.

Finasteride is one of the only two FDA-approved drugs for the treatment of hair loss for men in the USA, along with minoxidil

Finasteride slows further hair loss and provides about 30% improvement in hair loss after six months of treatment, with effectiveness persisting as long as the drug is taken.

Alternatives Of Finasteride For Hair Loss

1. When it is used for hair regrowth and hair loss, it has plenty of alternatives.

It includes Minoxidil, Minoxidil sulfate, dutasteride, Spironolactone.

The most popular ingredient used for hair loss should be minoxidil.

Both minoxidil and finasteride are FDA-approved drugs for the treatment of male pattern hair loss.

Because minoxidil is working both ways: topically applied and orally taken, it is just more popular. 

1.1 You can find as many topical brands for minoxidil as you want, such as Rogaine, Alomax, Alopek, Alopexy, Alorexyl, Alostil, Aloxid, Aloxidil, Anagen, Apo-Gain, Axelan, Belohair, Boots Hair Loss Treatment, Botafex, etc.

And the list goes on and on, just too many.

Due to minoxidil’s huge demand, minoxidil’s price is way below its cost, about one-tenth of the price for it.

1.2 Minoxidil sulfate is a sulfate salt of minoxidil. It has better solubility in water than minoxidil. Compared to finasteride, minoxidil sulfate is still very cheap. It is only slightly more expensive than minoxidil.

1.3 Dutasteride is an improved form of it. It is more expensive with less popularity though. The current market price for dutasteride is about 6000usd/kg.

1.4 Spironolactone works by slowing down the production of androgens to regrow hair. Reduced production of androgens can slow down the progression of hair loss caused by androgenic alopecia. It can also encourage hair to regrow. Finasteride grows hair by preventing testosterone from breaking down into DHT, the hormone that is thought to cause male pattern baldness.

2. When it is used for hirsutism (excessive facial and/or body hair growth) in women, eflornithine hydrochloride is its alternative.

Finasteride was proved to be able to reduce 93% of excessive facial hair and 73% excessive body hair in women within 2 years.

While eflornithine has been used for hirsutism way back to the 1980s by Gillette and is the current mainstream treatment for excessive facial hair.
